Fun Link Friday: Cookie Masterpieces of Japan

Ever attempted to make a beautiful holiday cookie to discover it just didn’t turn out to be much more than a blob with sprinkles? Never fear, this week’s quickie Fun Link Friday introduces the masterful cookie decorating skills of Chihiro Ogura, a culinary artist and baker responsible for all sorts of tasty works of art! Owner of the independent baking company ANTOLPO, Ogura was recently featured on My Modern Met with examples of fantastic Japanese culture-themed cookies, from the Edo-period images of the wind and thunder gods (seen above) to beautiful reproductions of seasonal paintings and your favorite holiday imagery (like flying koi flags!). These cookies may be too beautiful to eat, but I want to nonetheless! Check out the article linked above, Ogura’s website, her blog or instagram account to see many more incredibly beautiful icing works. Happy Friday!
